Scratch programming language


Scratch is a free visual programming language developed to help simplify the process of creating and programming animations, games, music, interactive stories and more.

The Scratch programming language is primarily targeted at children ages eight and older, and is designed to teach computational thinking using a simple but powerful building-block approach to software development that focuses more on problem solving than on specific syntax.

Originally developed by the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab, Scratch is currently available in more than 50 different languages and can run on Windows, Macintosh and Linux operating systems.
